This picture serves no purpose other than to illustrate the fact that once again I managed to go from level 1 to 80 without a single crash, in over 4 hours of very stable gameplay. Also it looks nice.

Cars Development

I'm trying a "new" physics system in my cars, and while I believe I'm getting great results, I'm uncertain about some of the mechanics. For that reason, I've decided to share the latest development version of the new cars cog in the hopes of getting it tested, reviewed and criticized, and I would love to receive some of your own input.

There are currently 10 car models, each with different performances. These are:
- Porsche 911 Carrera
- 80s Toyota Corolla
- Chevrolet Corvette C5
- Ford Probe
- Lamborghini Diablo SV
- Mercedes SL600
- Mercedes CLK-GTR
- Ford Cougar
- McLaren F1
- Renault Clio
Some of these have different colors, which you can change by "activating" the car while crouching.

Controls are mostly the same as in previous versions except for A/D that now changes gears, although engine mechanics are not yet implemented in the latest version.

I recommend you mess with some settings in the car cog, which I've included separately from the Gob for easier access.

Included are also an older version of the cars cog, which doesn't use the new physics system but has very functional engine mechanics with manual transmission; and a long highway-like level with passing traffic cars.

JK: DroidWorks

I don't know if anyone has ever heard of it, but there's a 1998 game released by LucasArts called Star Wars: DroidWorks, which uses the Sith Engine (and in fact, shares some resources, including models and textures with JK).

What's interesting is that this game, unlike JK and MotS, it's not a FPS but a puzzle/learning game which involves the player solving various puzzles of all kinds, most of which have never really been attempted in JK.

With the help of ZED, DroidWorks levels can actually be loaded into JK, and with some extra Cog work, they can be made fully playable (or at least finishable). I'm trying to make it so all levels can be played from start to finish, although I'm pretty sure it can't be released or shared for obvious legal reasons.

Announcement and Update

I'm proud to announce that with the latest release, (2017.07.22), guns and basic elements of JkGR are pretty much finished. Any upcoming addition to these elements will be simply extras and it's unlikely there will be any major change in that area. That being, for the next major release, Unholy State combat and Lore/SP levels will have the maximum priority. Hopefully I'll have most classes ready and playable Underworld and City levels (with quests and objectives) by the next major release.

Also, for the folks that downloaded the current version of JKGR before today, there has been an update with some bug fixes and a new weapon (Winchester 1897 shotgun), so you might want to download it again.

(It's amusing how for some reason I write this as if there's like hundreds of people visiting this site daily. It's fun to pretend, though.)

Finally, the latest version of JkGR is out!

This is probably the biggest update to any mod ever. Unfortunately there were no new classes added, but there was a major revamp to absolutely everything else, from sounds to models, from functionalities to special effects. This version includes the new HUD and many more new functionalities (including support to WWII - The Western Front!)

New project announcement

A SP level pack for Jk: Gunrunners with various arenas, following a gameplay style similar to the 2005 Star Wars Battlefront II's Conquest mode, based on the eastern front of World War II. Take on the role of a Red Army soldier and defend the motherland as you fight off the invading fascist hordes!

Click here to watch a gameplay video!

The level used here is a retextured version of XZero's FY_Snow level, which itself is a recreation of a Counter Strike map.

Does anyone know any (preferably MP) level that would be good for this style of gameplay? Preferably one that is quite open and horizontal. The AI uses a pretty simple path finding algorithm to reach the flags and I want to see how it works out on larger, more complex levels.

Class selection, Inspector combat (WIP)

Just uploaded a new video. This time I'm playing as an Inspector, fighting an Executioner then an Enforcer. I managed to beat them both fairly easily, but it took some practice for me to be able to accomplish this, especially against the Enforcer.

I'm also showing the Class selection screen. As you can see, most classes aren't finished yet and I'm just using placeholder models for their weapons and armor. Music by yours truly.

Footsteps and ambience

Thanks to the JK2013 patch, I managed to make more floor surface types than the ones already included in JK (dirt, metal etc). By controlling footstep sounds via Cog, I checked for surface flags that are normally unused by the engine, making it so the it plays new sounds according to these flags. This way, footstep sounds are all handled via Cog rather than by the SND.

The tricky part however is keeping the timing in sync with the animations. I don't really need it to be perfectly synced however, just close enough so it is convincing.

McLaren F1, WIP

Just uploaded a new video showing a still unfinished McLaren F1 driving through the also unfinished city. You can also see the new camera style I'm trying to create so it feels more like a racing game.

There are clearly some issues there, such as the lack of car interior (which I'm still working on) and a few odd physics stuff.

As for the city, there's nothing except for some really blocky buildings in some really blocky streets with really repetitive texturing. Other than that, there are a bunch of colored cars parked and a nice evening sky.

Click here to watch the video

Btw, does anyone knows how to convert car models made for other games into JK? If I keep this pace, it's gonna take months before I have a reasonable amount of different, good looking car models.

This is what crossing the line is all about. Although obviously, there's still a lot of work to be done here.

Help Needed... sort of.

I'm trying to create a (really) large city level for the JKGR campaign, but unfortunately, I have very little experience in proper level design. I have the map sketch, but I'm not going anywhere until I learn how to make proper curves. Does anyone know any good tutorial or technique for efficiently drawing good curves in open air areas in JED/ZED/NJED?

I've tried a couple Massassi tutorials on crafting curved pipes, but I'm not sure that's what I'm looking for...

So, can anyone give me a hand?

A release!

Probably not what you were expecting, but anyway... I just released a small level where you can see the Enforcer class (and friendly NPCs) in action. There's a simple objective and quite a bunch of enemies to kill, although unless you're running JKGR, there's not really a lot to do (but maybe a lot to see).

Also included is a small level where you can test the enhanced path finding method that is used by allies to follow the player so they won't get stuck behind walls and stuff. It's not perfect, but it's pretty reliable (and insanely better than what JK has).

This level should be frequently updated as new classes are added and the AI is enhanced.

For the sake of your survival, you can use the Whiteflag cheat to avoid being attacked by enemies. "Activate" defeated allies to revive them.

Does not require JKGR or any other mods running.

'cause really, how many hugs have we seen before in JK? I just found out you can place multiple models inside the same 3do file and animate them together. Cutscenes will benefit greatly from this.

Not dead... yet.

This project is probably far too pretentious to succeed. Not only it involves a mod that (even at its current state) has more features than I have ever seen in JK, I also plan to do a full SP campaign with 10+ episodes (along with an MP map pack for no one to play on). Considering a complete version of this mod will probably never see the light of day, I'll try to be more active around here to let you guys (anyone?) know where this is going.

Now, the mod itself is actually going pretty well. I've got all the basic code for stats, classes, skills and weapons ready, and pretty much everything is working as intended except for a few limitations on the engine that are quite difficult to overcome.

So far, there are 18 available weapons (not all are fully functional), excluding fists, grenades/mines and the transformed state and its classes. Out of these 18, 10 are heavier weaponry (rifles and the likes) and 8 are lighter weapons (pistols etc) that can be dual wield with no restrictions. Grenades and Proximity Mines can be used as inventory items. However, you can only carry three (2 light + 1 heavy) weapons at a time + 5 grenades and 5 mines.

Regarding classes however, there are only 2 implemented out of 12. Out of these two, only one (Enforcer) is 100% functional, while the other one (Executioner) still got some skills to go. I plan to include 2 new classes each release, so the very first "official" JkGR release might actually come out any day now. All the 10 skills for the Enforcer and for untransformed characters are complete (that is, until I decide to change everything again).

As for the level series, I've got the whole story ready, plus a bunch of ideas for how it will actually work. Since JK's default Save system most certainly won't be able to handle the new stuff in JkGR, the whole thing will start in sort of a "Warp Room" (think "Area 21" for JKMP or Lego Star Wars), where there will be several doors that will take you to a respective level. However, at startup, only the first of these is unlocked, and every time you complete a level, you'll receive a passcode which will allow you to unlock the next level. That way, if you keep the passcode you'll be able to continue your progress without having to resort to JK's messy Save system.

I've also started work on a few locations from the level series, just to use as a base or to save some time when I start the actual work on them. There are quite a few problems however: firstly, I suck at level designing. You can expect great Cogging, lots of fun features, somewhat good texturing, but blocky architecture all around. And secondly, I'm working on this alone, so I'll have to dub all the characters myself. This is gonna be a real. solid. pain. Would I be able to pull this off? Maybe.

Anyway, if you somehow managed to read this far, I assume you are pretty interested in this project so I suggest you read the manual I uploaded. It includes everything you should know regarding weapons, gameplay, classes, skills and even some lore/character background. Lots of fun.

Yay.

Ledge Grabbing

I just uploaded a level Cog that allows ledge hanging. You can select up to 10 wall surfaces to make them "grabable". You just need to touch one of these walls and the player will grab it's upper edge. There is also a timer for how long the player will keep hanging before letting go; default is 5 seconds and setting it to 0 will disable it. You can use W/Jump to climb and S/Crouch to let go of the wall/ledge, as well as A/D to move left/right.

The selected surface should be a wall, not a floor! For bests results, the selected surface should be about 0.1 JKUs high.

This doesn't use ghosts and pulses but Touched messages from the selected surfaces instead, so it works pretty much flawlessly, regardless of Mods (except for Hell Raiser's Ledge Hang, certainly).

Keyframes are included.

Hi!

I always knew I would end up coming back someday. Most of the stuff for the music album I'm recording is done, so I'm taking a little break from the songwriting/recording process and decided to upload a new version of JKGR for you guys.

By the way, here's some of the music I've been recording: This is a song called "The Everlasting Scars of Relinquishment", a rather simplistic/minimalistic instrumental Outro to my album, "The Liberator: Rise and Fall of an Immeasurable Force":

Project Stalled

It's been far too long since I worked on this the last time as I've been more focused on my music. Thus, I'm releasing what I had from JKGR, there are a lot of unfinished stuff, but I believe it's playable.

I don't know if I'll be coming back to JK one day. Probably yes, but I don't know how long it will take.

I'm also here to do a little promotion for my musical project: it is a solo Rock/Metal project (I play/record everything by myself) called "The Liberator". I write all the music and record everything at home with the help of a drum machine and other programs. I still don't have any finished material, but I'm currently recording the first Album/Demo, called "The Liberator: Rise and Fall of an Immeasurable Force".

JKGR - Take 2

I just uploaded what I have so far. There are two weapon types: pistols and light weapons (the final version will have pistols, explosives and light, medium and heavy weapons).

- You must activate the new Power Ups to get them, this includes Energy Cells (ammo for both pistol and light type weapons).
- To pickup a new weapon you must have no weapons selected (fists), and you must discard your current weapon to get another of the same type.

Everything else (classes and stuff) is the same as in the previous Demo, except for the "Flight" skill (first Light side power).

- To avoid falling down from explosion forces, you must roll when you land (crouch + WASD). Rolling will also decrease falling damage.
- If you have at least least 3 stars assigned to the Roll skill, pressing the Crouch key mid-air will make the character perform a air flip.
- Pressing the Jump key close to a wall will make the character jump off the wall.
- Pressing the Crouch key before jumping will make you jump higher.

There's a issue with the player's animations at startup/after leaving Unholy State, but using the Flight skill should solve it. Light weapons have no model yet, so their Power Ups look the same as pistols. There are also a few minor bugs and unfinished stuff here and there, but nothing too big, I guess.

Please give your comments, questions and suggestions at the forums.

Sad news

Unlike what it seemed, I never actually left JK/JKGR, just took a long break from editing to focus on other stuff, such as school and a musical project I recently started. Even though, I always came here to see what was new on the JK community, and I also kept on gathering new ideas for my "comeback" into JK editing.

Recently, scanning through old HDs, I found that I lost all my copies/backups of all my mods and projects, including my two major projects - JK: Gunrunners and JK MP RPG (even though I never got to show where they were going, they got indeed pretty big).

I now completely regret never having any online backups, and now my future in JK is rather unclear - I either move on and do justice to all the four years I spent on this Mod to start everything again from scratch, or I leave JK for good.

2012-07-05 20:27:36
Update: Class Specializations

I recently had the fantastic idea to cut the player model into three separate things, allowing it to have lots of different weapon, armor and appearance choices, including dual weapons and stuff.

Thus, I also had the idea to cut the six basic classes I had before into twelve, where you still have six basic classes but you can choose (via Skill selection screen) between two different skill sets and weapons for each class, where your skills alignment determines which weapon you will be using.

Basically as it follows...

* Warrior: Enforcer (Big sword) / Slayer (Dual swords)
* Rogue: Hunter (Dagger) / Assassin (Dual knives)
* Ranger: Sentinel (Bow) / Shooter (Dual guns)
* Mixed: Inspector (Rapier) / Caster (Scepter)
* Wizard: Sorcerer (Staff) / Warlock (Magic sword)
* Tanker: Knight (Sword + shield) / Defender (Poleaxe)

More info coming soon!

Explaining the Classes System

The main feature in this Mod is the Classes system. Classes can be chosen on the character creation menu (on MP, don't know how to do it on SP), where you originally pick the saber color.

There are 6 classes to choose from. Each class has a different weapon, gameplay style, skills and attributes (defense, MP regeneration, Stamina regeneration).

Unlike most of other JK mods with a Class system, in JkGR, the character class will not be a "passive" thing (it can be turned on/off), nor it will limit the weapons/powers you can use. The chosen class can be activated in-game, by a hotkey.

While your class isn't activated, you will have your basic weapon selection, choosing from 8 guns (pistols, rifles, rocket launchers) and two melee weapons (Fists and Saber. I have no idea what to do with the saber!).

To activate your Class, you'll need Unholy Points. There are three ways to get Unholy Points: by picking up a Unholy Shard (Battery power-up), by fighting (taking damage), or just waiting until it fills up by itself, although it fills a lot faster when fighting. Your Unholy Points bar will fill faster depending on your Unholy Senses (Force Sense) skill. On the interface, the Unholy Points bar replaces the Battery meter.

When your Unholy Points bar reaches the maximum (200), it will become brighter, which means you can activate your Class, becoming the ultimate Killing Machine.

While the Class is enabled, your Unholy Points will be consumed. If it reaches zero, your character will turn into the basic non-classed character again. To stop the Unholy Points bar from decreasing, you must not stop fighting.

Your Light/Dark alignment will determine if, when activated, your Class will be a Gunrunner (good guy, uses Dark powers) or a Holy Agent (bad guy, uses Holy powers). Your alignment determines your look (when the class is enabled) and your skills.

Some Features

I would like to explain some of the features in this Mod. While at first, this mod will look like nothing more than another random weapons mod, it is, actually much more than that. Okay, not that much. Here are some special features in JK: GR, which will be explained later:

- New Weapons, including the Sniper Rifle, the Rocket Launcher, and the Pwn-Class Heavy Concussive Cannon
- A brand new Class System, where you can choose your favorite class to fight as
- New Power-Ups, including Extra Life, which allows you to rise again at the same spot and with the same items after being killed
- New Skins, including games/movies/anime characters
- New Powers, which will change depending on your class

Introducing JKGR

This is a mod I've been working for some time, but only now I decided to take it to another level. I started this mod when I lost my video card, so I wasn't able to edit my current project at the time, TFW. For that reason, all textures in this mod are 8Bit, so it can be played perfectly with video cards that don't support 3D acceleration on JK.

While making this mod, I'm learning to do stuff I wasn't able to do before, and some of them were never actually seen on JK, giving it a even better feel and gameplay. If you are interested, or have any opinion, comment or ideas, please, let me know at the forums.

Negative Accident

After some testing on my newly discovered color effects, it seems that using any value below -0.1 would turn your screen into negative, where -1 would be the perfect negative form. Values between -0.006 and -0.09 would highly saturate colors, where in values near -0.09, colors will also be turning into negative, but not as clear as when the value is set to -1.

> Edit: This effect only works without 3d Acceleration - otherwise, you get a pitch black image. <

2010-07-30 21:59:48
Negative Accident

Don't know if anyone has ever seen something like this in JK before, but it's surely the first time I've seen this.
Accidentaly, I've twisted JK's colormap, making it look like a negative image, just using a simple Cog verb: newColorEffect
Apparently, you can mess with this by changing the last parameter to a negative value.
I can't run JK with 3d Accel, so I can't tell if this works on 16bit.

2010-07-15 19:38:53
8-Bit Version

I just found out why the latest version of TFW didn't work without 3D Acceleration. I'm currently working on a full 8-bit version of TFW, for those who can't run JK on 16bit. (like me)

Hi

Got JK back. I'm still without TFW, but no worries, I'm sure I'll find it.

Sorry for being out for so long.
I lost my HD, which was with the newest version of TFW. From now on, I'm back to JKHUB, and if I have any new ideas, or any news about TFW, I will inform to you, until I find my HD and get back at editing.

2009-06-22 13:20:27
An excellent idea..

after some time thinking, i got an idea about making different types of saber: Lightsaber, Vibroblade, Saber Staff, Vibro double-blade, Dual Lightsabers and Dual Vibroblades. All those weapons will be available in TFW, and you will be able to select them trough the Saber Selection menu, while you create your MP character. All of them will use the same weapon number (default saber) and have different effects and moves.

...

Headshot is working, Rifle Scope needs some improvements. If you get killed while using scope, you must select the rifle (8) and use secondary fire, because the scope will not be 'disabled' if you die.

Got the sparks.

Also, some models are changed: Indy don't use a 'skirt' anymore and the whip model is better, but isn't moving yet.

Version Remake almost done.

Yes! i've got the Infernal Machine model working... but not exactly as i wanted... and i'm still working on the whip.

2007-09-23 20:48:20
I'm gonna remake it.

Cause i'm not satisfied with this... The weapons don't work in MP and if you get killed in SP you can't go back! :|

Dark Jedi CMPs

Same as the Mod "Dark Jedi in SP" by The Vertigo, avaible at Massassi.net. I only made some little changes so the CMPs aren't all screwy.

Project #400!

So fast, so good!

I've made the test of the headshots, so, probably will be featured in this mod... but now that's bad... the bullet holes and blood effects aren't working anymore! :(
*aims to a nazis head* -"You says, 'Ouch, this hurts!' "

Still working on...

I'm still working on the new whip and the enhanced models, at now, i only have a 'semi-jke' Indiana Jones model... i'm increasing the damage of the weapons, working on bulletholes, and after i playing PwP2 (Power Weapons Pack 2.0) i've watching for that thing... Headshot... That's simply c00l! So, in the "coming soon" version it may feature the Head Shot.
